Wednesday 15th May

We are almost half the way through the month and the temperature does not seem to be rising much, at least it has stayed dry and sunny and we have not had any snow like other areas of the country...Before I forget, a  telescope and tripod were found today, so if you have mislaid yours today while you were out on Islay, give the Police in Bowmore a shout as the items were handed in to them. Their contact number is 01496 810 222. Andrew and Jane had 3 male and a female Scaup on Loch Indaal from Blackrock. On the foreshore opposite Blackrock farm itself, they had 42 Dunlin, 2 Little Tern and 4 Pale bellied Brent Geese before they were all spoofed by a Peregrine Falcon! This evening in the sun, looking out at the bird feeders, it was some job trying to decide whether the Greenfinches or the Siskins were the "greenest"....
